The Skift Travel Health Index is 108 in April 2024.

Highlights from this month’s Skift Travel Health Index include:

  •  All regions are seeing growth over April last year (with the exception of Latin America, which remains at 99% of 2023 levels).
  • While growth for Latin America has slowed, it remains a popular choice for American travelers as evidenced in the growth of departures from the U.S. to Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.
  • While Japan and Hong Kong experienced a slowdown over the last month, both remain 16% above 2023.
  • Data points towards a strong positive consumer sentiment for travel in the coming months, with 70% of travelers planning leisure trips from 1 March to 31 May 2024.

” The spring travel surge and strong consumer sentiment towards travel boosted the Skift Travel Health Index to 108 in April 2024, offering a promising outlook for the travel industry. With summer travel on the horizon, the momentum of growth is expected to continue in the coming months.” – Saniya Zanpure
